Essex housing association CHP has today taken management of 30 new homes available for shared ownership in Thurrock. These are the first properties to be handed over to CHP as part of its new partnership with Legal & General Affordable Homes.

The 30 new flats are located at the new Renovo development in West Thurrock and will be followed by a further 30 which CHP will take management of in the summer. The apartments are a mix of one and two-bedroom properties.

CHP is one of 14 organisations chosen nationwide to manage properties built by financial services firm Legal & General under their new affordable homes initiative. The new partnership represents a shared vision that an affordable home is the cornerstone of a healthy and good quality of life.

CHP Chief Operating Officer Kate Franklin said:

“We’re really excited to take management of our first properties delivered as part of the new Legal & General Affordable Homes initiative. There is a huge shortfall in the number of affordable homes being delivered in Essex, and as a leading local housing association we’re committed to bridging that gap.

“We’re very proud to be bringing our expertise to this new partnership, which has been made possible thanks to a bold new investment by Legal & General. As managers of these new properties we will do everything we can to provide the highest level of service to the customers who move into these homes.”
